A Different World (1987–1993): Season 2, Episode 11 - It Happened One Night - full transcript

Whitley offers her support to Kim when she fears that she may be pregnant.

£ I know my parents love me £

£ stand behind me
come what may £

£ I know now that I'm ready £

£ for I finally heard them say £

£ it's a different world £

£ than where you come from £

£ yes, it is now, yeah £

£ here's our chance to make it £

£ and if we focus on our goal £

£ you can dish it,
we can take it £

£ hey, just remember
that you've been told £

£ it's a different world £

£ it's a different world £

£ it's a different world £

£ than where you come from £

£ ooh £

£ than where you come from £

She says she
doesn't want alimony

so she's doing
that movie in Italy.

The real deal is

she wants $40 million,
both houses, the condo

and the llamas.

That is so tragic.

Marriage is not
a business transaction.

But divorce is.

She'll need that forty million

to pay for her lawyers
and her hair weaves.

Isn't there something else
we can talk about?

They're human beings.

They're entitled to privacy.

Kim, they held
a press conference.

She looked so beautiful.


The girl's forehead is so high

you could write the whole
divorce settlement on it.

Whose turn is it
to answer the phone and say

"I'm sorry, Robert,
but Kim is not here"?

I've answered the phone
the last three times.

I'm tired of talking to him.

I don't know what Robert did

but I'm sure he's calling
to apologize.

I don't want to talk to him.

Ladies, there is a chance,
however slight

that it is not Robert.



What a surprise.

No, Kim's not here.

I'll tell her you called.

Will you do something for me?

Don't call back.

Thanks, lettie.

Kim, I find lying
morally reprehensible.

But when I do lie

I like to know
what I'm lying about.

We had a little fight.

No, no, no.

I want specifics.

So do I.

You know how it is.

You say something,
he says something.

You say something else.

Then he says the stupidest thing
that's ever been said in life.

That settles it.

I'm never lying again.

What a pill of an evening.

Ladies, never date
a work of art.

You went out with Lorenzo farr.

He is walking perfection.

He has three topics
of conversation:

He, himself and him.

That must be Lorenzo.

He stopped looking at himself
in the dessert spoon

long enough to realize
I was gone.

Yes, Lorenzo?


Kim, it's Robert...
On my phone?

I'll talk to him.

Lorenzo should be calling
any minute.

Make it quick.

I don't want to talk to you.

I didn't mean that quick.

I don't ever want
to see Robert again.

What did he do?

Don't tell me.

He's seeing someone else,
that little weasel.

There's no other woman.

I know.

He studies too much.

Study, study, study,
never having time for you.

That's why I like my men
a little on the dumb side.

They don't do a lot of homework

so they have
plenty of time for me.

I've been seeing
too much of Robert.

And you have realized

that after all these months

prince charming is just
Kermit with a crown on.

Whitley, I...

I think I'm pregnant.

It's clear to me
what you have to do.

Spruce yourself up.

Dive right back
into the social swim.

What did you say?

I think I'm pregnant.

I'm late.

Oh, is that all?

You yourself should know
as a future physician

the human body
is an imperfect machine.

I myself have been late
several times.

Three weeks and four days?

Not quite that late.

I got to student health
just before they closed.

I'll know tomorrow.

I can't wait that long!

How could they do this to me?!

Whitley, it will be all right.

Make me some tea.


Want to go out for pizza?



I said no.

I know you're upset.

I thought going out would help.

Great idea.

Go out, take my car.

This is so nice of you.

How can you be so calm?

I've waited this long.

What's another nine hours?


Here's something to worry about.

I just gave my car to a girl

that can't even walk
without bumping into walls.

Walter, you make this shot

you might have a prayer
catching me.

Three ball, cross corner pocket.


You got something
stuck between your teeth?

Robert, you're just in time

to watch Walter oakes

rip the felt off the table.

Walter, I've been
looking for you.

I've got to talk to you.

Don't say another word unless
somebody's dead or pregnant.


You said another word.

I know.

Excuse me, colonel Taylor.

Give it up, Robert.

You know my girlfriend, Kim?


She took this test

and there's a good chance
she's... she's...

She's... not dead.

What did I tell you boys
the first week of school?

I didn't want to have this
conversation with none of y'all.

If you can't be cool,
be careful.

That's why I gave you
the Walter oakes date pack.

I know, sir.

Where was your
Walter oakes date pack?

You know how it is.

Sometimes you get caught

I never get caught unprepared

because I always have
my Walter oakes date pack.

All you boys think about
is right now.

You might think beyond right now

if you walked around
for nine months

looking like a blimp with feet.

How's Kim doing?

She won't see me or talk to me.

It's probably because
when she said she might be...

I said we should get rid of it.

You took the sensitive approach.

It was my first reaction, man.

When will she know for sure?

First thing tomorrow.

There's nothing
you can do but wait.

Okay, wait.

I can do that.

Or I could go to her dorm
and make her listen to me.


Why don't you stay right here?

You any good at pool?

Not really.

You can be on
colonel Taylor's team.

What did you do to my car?


I didn't do anything.

But the truck...

The truck?

Just a little, itty-bitty truck.

The truck?

I was parked at the time.

Well, parking.

You're not in
new Mexico anymore.

We have other things on
our streets besides tumbleweeds.

It's only the Fender...

And the grille...

And a little of the headlight.

I've been watching
this auto repair show on pbs.

I'm sure I can
hammer those dents out myself.

There you are.

You and Robert made up?

Yep, everything's just fine.

I am so glad.

You are the perfect couple.

The first time I saw you...

Freddie, you need your rest

to bang those dents
out of my car.

All right.

When I saw you weren't
in your bed

all kinds of thoughts
raced through my head.

If I'm pregnant,
what am I going to do?

I have a high school diploma
and $32.

How can I have a baby?

Kim, I have some
mad money saved up.

If you need money for any reason

there is money.

I don't want an abortion.

Why does everybody
keep saying that?


I didn't mean to...

I know.

So if you are,
you're keeping the baby?


I don't know.

I can't give it up.

God, I can't believe
this is happening to me.

No matter what happens

your family will
be there for you.

Your parents love you.

My parents.

The day I left for hillman

my mom ran out of the house
with this plastic stethoscope

she and dad got me
when I was ten.

She said

"we're all very proud of you.

Now you'll
make us prouder."

And then dad...

Dad says, "now you're
on your way, Dr. Reese."

"Now you're on your way."

Come on back, baby.

Come on, get.

Come on.

Why don't you just take the ball

and throw it in the hole?

We ought to let
these boys go home.

I'm up next.

You don't want witnesses
to your humiliation.

The colonel's right.

Walter, here's the keys.

Lock up for me.

Empty the ash trays.

You do that.

Get out of my face.

I'll leave, too.

Sit down, boy.

You ain't going nowhere.

Walter, I have been here
for the last three hours.

You won't even let me play.

That's because you play worse

than this fool here.

I swear I won't
go try to talk to Kim.

I want to go home and sleep.


I'll walk you back.

Walk me back?

Oh, I suppose I should trust you

because you're such
a responsible citizen.

These boys are old enough

to find their way home.

Besides, if you leave,
there won't be anyone to whup.

You walk him
straight back to the dorm.

Tuck him in tight.

Maybe tie a bell around his toe.

No, just take all of his shoes

and his pants.


Okay, okay, let's play
some serious pool.

I believe it's my break?

Break on.

Close your eyes.

It's about to get ugly.

You know, it's not like
I don't prepare these boys.

With your
"Walter oakes date pack"?

I get them from student health.

Next time, I'm going
to include a tape that says

"don't do it."

That sounds like a real plan.

Excuse me, big man.

Eight ball, corner pocket.

Walter, I've watched you
with your boys.

You're doing a fine job.

You're trying to make them

become responsible young men.

Take Dwayne Wayne, for example.

You got him on the right track.

Thank you, sir.

Where did all the balls go?

In those tiny little holes.

By the way, Dwayne's
been seeing my daughter.

He didn't happen to ask you

for a "date pack," did he?

Hey, Walt...

Hey, Walter,
come back here, man.

Push me up, man.

Push me up.

Your foot
is in my face.

This isn't her room.


What are you doing here?

I, uh...

He's about to get thrown out.

I've got to talk to Kim.

I thought you made up.

My boy's got to talk to Kim.

Your boy's got to get out.

She could be in serious trouble.

That's the key word... trouble.

What kind of trouble?

In trouble trouble.

I think you're
going to have to dig

just a little bit deeper
into your vocabulary.

In trouble.

Oh, no!

What kind of trouble?

I'll tell you later.

You go talk to her.

Thank you.
Thank you.

Wait a minute.


Did you hear something?

I distinctly heard a thump.

A thump?

Like someone falling.

That was me.

I fell out of bed again.

I always do that.

I'm surprised that you
never heard me thump before.

Well, perhaps you
should get a bed rail.



Come on.

Go, go, get.





Haven't you done enough?

Please, Kim,
I got to talk to you.

She doesn't want to talk to you.

What are you doing here?

I'm here for moral support.

Now's a fine time to get moral.

Listen, I've got a solution.

I've already heard it.

We didn't appreciate it one bit,
you heartless rhinoceros.

It's my baby, too.

Kim, will you marry me?

We'll wait in the hall.

I can't.

Lettie's on the prowl.


I'm sorry about this afternoon.

I was insensitive and selfish.

I want you to marry me.

That's all I wanted to hear.

There's a justice of the peace

about ten minutes from here.

There's another one...

Robert, I don't know what to do.

You're going to stay in school

become a doctor.

You can take care of us
when we get sick.

I don't want you to marry me
just because I'm pregnant.

What makes you think
that's the reason?

What's going on in there?

He's proposing.

That's great!

Isn't it?

It's just peachy.

They're fixing a disaster
by creating a catastrophe.

Robert is doing
the honorable thing.

He made his bed

and he's willing to lie in it.

Maybe that wasn't
the best image.

It's just plain wrong.

Jaleesa, you had
a disastrous teen-age marriage.

Enlighten this simpleton.

I wouldn't have put it
exactly that way.

But she's basically right.

It is always the woman
that carries the burden.

I hope you're happy.

What are you talking about?

I didn't do anything.

Kim will make a great mother.

She's giving, she's kind,
she's great with kids.

She's great with people,
but kid's are people

and she's more mature
than a lot of us.

Sit your pollyanna behind down.

You know that girl's too young

to be anybody's mother.

Okay, we'll help her.

We'll be time-share mommies,
and the baby could live here.

We'll take turns
taking care of it.

You could be
the time-share daddy.


Picture me taking care
of somebody's baby.

I can't even keep
my plants alive

and one's a cactus.

Cacti don't cry
when they're thirsty

like little Robert or Roberta
is going to do.

I am never having sex.

Not before I'm married,
not after I'm married.

Guys, I've known a few people

who have had babies
when they were young

and they managed
to make it all right.

Don't sugar-coat this.

This is the worst thing
that could happen to a person.

If it were me,
I wouldn't have it

and you wouldn't, either.

I used to think that

but after Lamar and I separated

I found out I was pregnant.

I thought about
having an abortion

but I decided to have my baby.

I had a miscarriage.

Can we talk about
something else?

Jaleesa, I didn't know...

I know.

If Dan quayle had freckles

he'd look like howdy doody.

I am not ready for college.

I'm going back to new Mexico
and live with the coyotes.

We decided not to do anything

until we know for sure.

I'll be there with you
no matter what.

He'll be there.

Go ahead, brother.

Okay, come on.

Everybody out.

Tomorrow morning,
at student health.

At 7:00 A.M.

Didn't you learn nothing
last time?

Out the same way you came in.

Robert, don't leave me
with these women again.

I should have took you
back to the dorm.

You're smiling.

It's a beautiful day.

A beautiful, beautiful day.

This means you're not...

The doctor said it was stress.

That's why I was late.

No more men
climbing in my window?

Not unless you invite them.

I cannot wait to tell whitley!


I was just on my way
to go get that bed rail.



Lettie, you scared me.

Did I?

I saw you downstairs.

You looked much happier
than you were yesterday.

I got some really good news.

Seems more like lucky news
to me.

You found out

you're not pregnant.


This isn't a lecture.

It's too late for that.

I want to ask one question.

What the hell were you thinking?

Lettie, I know...

Don't interrupt.




I'm sorry, lettie...

You better be

because I'm not
going to stand here

and watch you make
a shambles of your life!

I'm sorry.

I shouldn't have yelled.

But, Kim

if this ever happens again

don't worry about
what your mother will say

because you'll have
to deal with me first.

Yes, ma'am.

By the way, before
your next date with Robert

stop by my room

and pick up your
"lettie-be-ready date pack."

Oh, no...

No... no.

Now is not the time
to have a heart of jelly.

Kimberly, I will
be there for you.

I will be there for your baby.

Just call me auntie whitley.


Auntie whitley.

Auntie whitley...

I'm not pregnant.

You're not?


Sometimes, prayers are answered.

I couldn't have gotten
through this without you.

Thank you.

Your car was coming along fine

until this thing fell off.

I think it looks
better without it.
